Nouwens Transport Breda has achieved IATA Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV) accreditation.

Breda, Tuesday, 30th January 2018 – Nouwens Transport Breda has achieved IATA Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV) accreditation.

The Dutch trucking group says that being able to demonstrate a high quality of care in pharmaceutical transport has led to increased volumes in the second half of 2017, and the introduction of four fully CEIV certified vans to its fleet on 1st January 2018.

“This is a valuable addition to our already existing certifications such as Good Distribution Practice (GDP), TAPA-TSR1, and ISO-9001,” said Sven Veeke, Business Development & Sales, Nouwens Transport Breda.

“CEIV is the highest attainable international standard for quality in shipping pharmaceutical logistics by air.

“Our customers can count on us to ship their pharma products according to the highest quality standards possible.”

The CEIV certificate was awarded in 2017, and shows that Nouwens meets the highest quality requirements regarding shipping pharmaceutical goods through Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Nouwens Transport operates a temperature controlled, fully GDP-certified warehouse at its headquarters in Breda, with storage space for 2000 pallets over 1500 sq ft.

Our Mission

To provide a one-stop software and representative solution across the international freight supply chain.

“We will develop and support cost-effective, business critical software to match your complex requirements, providing communication and integration between freight forwarders, business partners, community and government systems.

We will protect and promote your interests by actively representing you on key industry and government committees and institutions, influencing strategy to minimise the impact of legislative changes.”

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
